Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali’s memorial services will take place this weekend in his hometown of Louisville. The 22,000-capacity KFC Yum! Center has already sold out tickets for the event, as Ali impacted the lives of so many.
Meanwhile, the Louisville baseball team is set to begin Super Regional play on Saturday against UC Santa Barbara. To pay homage to Ali, the Cardinals will sport an ‘Ali’ patch on their hats, as seen below:

This is a classy move from Ali’s hometown college baseball team. The Cardinals went 3-0 in regional play this past weekend.
